Filipino fast food chain, Jollibee, just opened its first-ever Brooklyn location on February 2, 2024.
The new hub for fried chicken and Jolly Spaghetti has taken over 5212 Kings Highway. The Brooklyn location is the chain’s fifth NYC outpost, with two already in each borough of Manhattan and Queens. However, the restaurant did sign a lease last February for a third Queens location, which would bring Jollibee’s count in NYC to a total of six.
It’s most recent opening was the Times Square flagship, home to exclusive menu items like Mandarin Orange Crispy Chicken Salad and Baked Cheddar Mac ‘n Cheese.
Originally, the listing announced that the Brooklyn Jollibee will be opening in September 2023, however, it was later pushed back. The new location follows the massive opening of the Astor Place Wegmans.
Jollibee is the largest and fastest growing Asian restaurant company in the world. The chain is most known for its signature menu item, Chickenjoy, which is hand-breaded fried chicken made with a secret marinade.
Jollibee began in the Philippines in 1978 and now has 1300 stores worldwide. Find the nearest location to you here.
